Show Us Your Life - Talgates and Favorite Teams

I've never participated in this before. But today is possibly the best day for me to start. Kelly over at Kelly's Korner hosts Show Us Your Life every Friday. This week is Tailgates and Favorite Teams. I regret that I do not have any pictures right now.

As far as professional sports, because I grew up in Philadelphia and still live nearby, I have to support every Philadelphia team. I'm especially excited about the Phillies because of how well they are doing this year (and last year). But my boyfriend Josh got me into the Steelers last year, and my grandmother who's from Pittsburgh area is thrilled.

As far as college sports, I blame my boyfriend for getting me into WVU football. This evening, I purchased tickets for the game against Connecticut in two weeks. This is my first college football game, and I am so fortunate to be able to take my boyfriend and his father. They are two of my very favorite people, and they are both WVU fans. I am so excited. I am going to have to get myself some blue and gold to wear. :)

Josh and I were walking around town last weekend and we ended up seeing the church he volunteered to help when he was a Boy Scout. He and several other boys laid the stone walkway through the graveyard maybe 10 years ago. I didn't take any pictures, but it was so nice for Josh to see that it's still in great condition. It was so peaceful in that little graveyard, and we're so glad we stumbled across that memory.

We also got some pictures of some ducks in the lake. My mom really likes mallard ducks, so I think I'm going to put together a small collage of pictures for her to hang next to her figurine collection. I had totally forgotten about that collection until just now. I used to climb up on the chair when I was little and play with the ducks whenever I could. Now I really have to do something with those pictures I took. I will also get around to posting the pictures once I find my cord to upload my pictures.
